Research Interests Andy's research interests include karst hydrology and geochemistry; the paleoclimate reconstructions from cave stalagmites; isotope geochemistry; the characterisation of organic matter in rivers, ground waters and engineered systems, including potable and recycled water; and surface and ground water quality monitoring.
Associate Professor Bryce Kelly BSc(Hons) UNSW, PhD UNSW
Research Interests Hydrogeology, aquifer recharge, aquifer sustainability, deep drainage in irrigation, electrical geophysical techniques, electrical properties of sediments, geostatistics, spatial data uncertainty quantification, risk assessment of contaminated sites, and 3D geological computer models.
Dr Gabriel Rau Dipl.-Ing. Universität Stuttgart (Germany), PhD UNSW (Australia)
Research Interests Gabriel's research interests include hydro(geo)logical process understanding through laboratory and field experiments, natural heat as a tracer, quantification of surface-groundwater exchange, (semi)-arid groundwater recharge, and mixing at the ocean groundwater interface.
Dr Hamid Roshan BSc, MSc and PhD Petroleum Engineering, UNSW
Hamid’s research interests centre on the experimental and numerical multi-physics modelling of reactive porous media in particular shales at both micro and macro scales. The area extends from physic-chemical characterization to experimental design and constitutive modelling under chemical, thermal, hydraulic and mechanical interactions with a wide range of applications from unconventional resources to environmental topics. Hamid was a Petroleum Engineer before joining the academia where he worked on geological modelling and formation evaluation within several geomechanical projects.
Research Interests Mine hydrogeology, mine water productivity in a catchment context, aquitard geology and hydrogeology including geochemical-isotope signatures of water sources and geotechnical centrifuge studies of multi-decadal processes, engineered seepage barrier design.
